Color and Gradations……

7 years, 10 months ago 8

It was late morning and I had just posted the mornings balloon shots and Jay Miller suggested we go out to the field to shoot some of the car show, car show?, could things get any better!!  I love to photograph classic cars, rusting and beautifully built like these today!  I continue to be amazed at the qualities of the D800.  In these kinds of shots in harsh light, dynamic range and gradation are both critical and the D800 passed with flying colors!


See if you agree??!!


Wow, this camera really makes shooting more fun than ever!   Hey, I sound like I work for Nikon!  Wait a minute, I do!!!


I’m posting my Monday post early as things will get busy tomorrow at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta.


In Him,

    Your post made me laugh! Balloon launch to car show. Wow. Those are just amazing shots. I wish I had a camera like that! Wait. I do. I guess the difference (huge!!!) must be the photographer. Maybe in another 45 years … Arghhh! I don’t have another 45 years!
